Abstract
During the process of its socio-economic development, Vietnam has been achieving the remarkable successes in poverty reduction, and the economic growth that is recognized by the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and the international communities. However, the fast industrialization and urbanization are attracting the increasing inflow of rural migrants to urban areas.

During the process of its socio-economic development, Vietnam has been achieving the remarkable successes in poverty reduction, and the economic growth that is recognized by the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and the international communities. However, the fast industrialization and urbanization are attracting the increasing inflow of rural migrants to urban areas. Besides that, the government announces the new poverty line, therefore, causing the rising urban poverty rate from 10 percent to 15 percent in 2010 by the General Statistics Office of Vietnam.

In despite of a large number of theoretical contributions to the poverty reduction, it seems have a weak understanding of the urban poverty reduction, particularly in the two bigger cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Therefore, the dissertation intends to explore and examine the connectivity between the government, the entrepreneurs, and the poor regarding the urban poverty reduction. But before that, urban poverty reduction in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City is investigated to look for the existing challenges that the two bigger cities have been facing to combine the policies and its implementation during its process of the urban poverty reduction. Hence, an explorative mixed research approach is designed and applied. A theoretical framework is built; key actors and their roles are analyzed, based on the empirical data collected from the private and public sectors. (Less)
